Wales beat Ukraine to qualify for World Cup


Wales qualified for their first World Cup since 1958 after edging past brave Ukraine 1-0 courtesy of an unfortunate own goal from Andriy Yarmolenko.

Played in an emotional atmosphere in Cardiff, Yarmolenko's header past his own goalkeeper from a Gareth Bale free-kick proved the decisive moment.

Wales, usually so reliant on Bale and Aaron Ramsey, had their goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey to thank. He wrote himself into Welsh football folklore with a performance of incredible defiance up against a Ukraine side that gave everything.

Robert Page's men can now can start planning for Qatar where they have earned a place in Group B with England, USA and Iran.
